A serious book about British advertising July 14 2009
By Rolf Dobelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
During the second half of the 20th century, many experts saw British advertising as the world's best. That significant achievement raises the question: How did the British ad industry achieve world acclaim? Noted British adman Winston Fletcher presents a detailed history of British advertising starting with the Victorian period and moving to contemporary developments. This detailed book profiles the leading agencies, people, campaigns, and even the regulatory and communications developments that shaped the industry. Fletcher, a key industry figure, saw these events first-hand, so this history reads like a memoir. Non-Britons will be at a slight disadvantage reading certain sections because they may not be familiar with some of the award-winning ads he profiles. However, getAbstract believes that if you are looking for a solid, focused, serious history of British advertising, this is it.
